Bare root trees
Frequently, when trees come from the nursery, they have flower buds and they will bloom the first year. They are responding to the soil and sun they were in at that nursery, not to the conditions in your yard. (Most trees from Bailey Nurseries were grown in Oregon.) The trees will probably stop blooming for a few years as they develop a good root system.
